About Me

Casting off the old Dublin lifestyle like a worn out vest and seeking pastures new. Where better to start than Berlin where the streets are paved with inspiration. Sport, socialising, reading and finding new adventures are my current objectives. And maybe even a job when the winter comes;-)

PHILOSOPHY

Do one thing every day that scares you.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Involved in bikesurfberlin (see weblink on my profile)- sharing bikes for all CSers in Berlin! - fantastic
First CS event attended ever in oct 2011. Loved the atmosphere. Better late than never. Hoping to attend many more in the future. 110% all the way.
